In the Fall of 1998, I joined the Hofstra faculty. Prior to joining the Hofstra faculty, my professional experience included six years as a vice president at Chemical Banking Corporation, where I was a divisional controller. In addition, for three years I was a member of the staff of the Financial Accounting Standards Board where I specialized in public utility accounting issues. I began my professional career with the Melville office of Arthur Andersen & Co. In addition, I am a certified public accountant (Penna.). I received my undergraduate degree in accounting from Drexel University and completed my graduate work at Rutgers University.
My academic and professional research interests include auditing and auditors' decision-making behavior and international accounting and auditing standard-setting.
I am a member of the American Accounting Association, the New York State Society of CPAs, and the American Institute of CPAs.
